Lost dvd drives in w7

I have lost both dvd drives. Uninstalling and updating drivers dosn`t help. In drive properties i find reference to registry for these devices is incorrect. I`ve done a couple of system restores but no luck. If i update drivers I get a message that the drivers are up to date.

Any help please

Interestingly, I have just updated a little-used Win 7 computer this evening, and it too has just lost the two DVD drives. Sorted by a registry edit, but I wonder if there's an MS update issue?

It is a possibility.

I often wonder about MS updates but I would have thought that a restore to before that would solve, but possibly not.

I know this was a common problem with the RC release but I thought they had solved it with the general release?
